From solid gold December birthstone jewellery to turquoise charms designed with personalisation in mind, here's the pieces we'll be wearing and gifting throughout December and far beyond.
What is turquoise?
Turquoise is a gemstone known and loved for its sky blue to blue-green colour, dipped in all the shades of the ocean. The semi-precious stone has been sought after all over the world for centuries long and is traditionally known as the birthstone for December. This makes turquoise jewellery a popular gift to celebrate a birthday, milestone or special occasion taking place in the last month of the year. It's also known as the gem for the 11th wedding anniversary.
Why we love turquoise jewellery
- Because of their vibrant, "Persian blue" colour, turquoise gems add a beautiful pop of colour to silver and solid gold jewellery pieces.
- Turquoise may be the December birthstone, but the versatile gem can be worn all year round in rings, earrings and charms. Turquoise is often associated with statement-making, summery and bohemian-inspired looks, featured in beaded bracelets and cabochon necklaces. We re-imagined this popular style and added a contemporary twist by pairing the gem with beautifully polished solid gold and sterling silver settings, simple and minimal in shape and design.
- The stone is prized for its spiritual meaning, believed to inspire good fortune and cleanse negativity!
